This is a fabulous restaurant. Excellent service and some of the best pizza I have had in a long time!

What a find! This little cafe sitting in a strip mall on Mandalay Ave in Clearwater Beach was delish! Indoor and outdoor seating and a great Italian menu - both casual pizza or full dinners. I ordered the Veal Piccante and it was very good. It came with angel hair pasta that was in a light lemon butter sauce -... More

Surprisingly it's kind of hard to find an Italian restaurant in Clearwater. Menu is good and I have to say it was the hottest dish I've ever gotten at a restaurant so I know it was fresh. It's a bit pricey but maybe not so for the area. The meals are good but not great. I wanted fettuccine and they... More

We were in Clearwater for a long weekend and walked along Mandalay and stopped into Al & Stella's looking for something simple. Lee decided on pizza which was very good! The inside was empty on a Friday night but the outside tables were at least half full. Service was very good and waiter was attentive.

My son and I stumbled upon Al & Stella's by accident because there is a Hulk Hogan statue outside the restaurant. I've grown up on authentic homemade Italian food, as well as frequenting Little Italy in NYC. I wasn't expecting much as this restaurant is located in Clearwater Beach - a place not known for Italian food. I was pleasantly... More

Despite how nice the atmosphere appeared at first, I had a bad feeling when we walked in after 5:30 and we were the only customers. We waited over 30 minutes for our food, in which we were not checked on. We sat with no drinks for 15 minutes. When they brought the food, we asked for refills. The server was... More

I echo the previous reviews of this place. Waiter was rude and gave us a sarcastic greeting when we asked if we could sit at one of the outside tables. Ordered adult portion of Spaghetti and meatballs for my 9 year old son and i had tomato, basil and mozz salad. The food hit the table is 3 minutes (no... More

We had dinner here. I had ravioli filled with kale and ricotta with chicken strips on top in a penne vodka sauce; it was good. My boyfriend had the chicken parm. The waitress had told us that it was not made the traditional way (it was not breaded). He ordered it anyway and said it was good. Too bad the... More

3rd time I was there food was less than average. Ordered pasta with sauce, no taste at all. Service was good but not worth the price. its a shame the have a great spot on the strip but must do a better Job.
